Snow Biking in Japan

cycling training on snow with road racing bikes with studded tires

Mt.Tokachidake (Mt.Tokachi) 179

Temperature: minus 17 degrees Celsius at the Tokachidake Hot Springs (Tokachidake Onsen).

It was snowing heavily. The road was covered of thick layer of fresh snow. The rear tire lost the traction several times above 800m of altitude because of the thick fresh snow. He cancelled the interval training as the snow was too deep, which makes difficult to ride comfortably. He descended soon after reaching the summit.
